Mila and Tyler have four kids. We just purchased this home as a vacation spot for our family and we are eager to share it with you when we are not using it. We are TV producers in the Bay Area, doing shows mainly for HGTV. Mila has always imagined creating a fun rental experience for guests, so she is excited to try her hand at it and wants to know the minute a guest thinks something could be improved! We are fun-loving creative types who like to decorate.

Mila Holt purchased this house in 2013

We made a bid on this house immediately after touring it because it is unique in its beauty, charm and design. We can't take much credit; the previous owners just had awesome taste! They remodeled the house about 5 years ago, creating the most restful spa in the backyard. Everything is so well thought out. There are endless ways to enjoy the home, and all of it is uncluttered yet cozy, serene and luxurious. You can park your car and not use it for days if you want, or tour the valley from this very central location. The Wine Country is truly one of the most beautiful places in the United States, and the variety of great eating, drinking, hiking, and biking experiences that await you is unmatched. It changes with every season!

When you open the three huge french doors that face onto the pool, turn on the slow-moving overhead fans, and plug in your Ipod to our whole-house sound system, you will know why we love this home. The neutral colors of the walls are soothing, and the light pours in through the huge, steel windows. Outdoors, there is a veggie garden, from which you can usually pick limes or tomatoes or herbs. At night, the outdoor lighting creates a magical environment for al fresco dining or wine tasting with friends. Set out the candles and relax!

A little gem in a walk-to-everything location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 23, 2014

If you are looking for a perfect pied-à-terre in St. Helena, this is it. Newly renovated and fresh as a daisy, this 3 Bedroom has new floors, nice bathrooms, a good-sized kitchen, modern decor, and two fireplaces - one is a "flip the switch" gas FP in the back family room overlooking the beautifully landscaped yard, pool and spa area - great for chilling out on chilly evenings without lifting a finger (well just one!). Walk to Roasters or Model Bakery every morning for your coffee or tea, walk home from Cameo theater, Cook, Market, French Blue, or any number of fabulous restaurants in downtown St. Helena - not to mention the shops. Perfect for a small family, 2 couples, or just yourselves. We are veterans of the area, have been coming to Napa Valley for over 20 years, and this one is a find. We stayed more than a month, and plan to return. Mila and Tyler are terrific hosts and the other neighbors we met are wonderful too. A truly comfortable, delightful spot for however long you can stay. A gem!!

Owner's Response: Diane, I cannot tell you how pleased I am that you had a lovely vacation. Five weeks is a long time, and I have to admit I felt a bit of pressure because I knew you had enjoyed other homes during your visits to St. Helena. I wanted ours to be just as good for you (better! :)). It is wonderful to have a renter in our home who seems so great. By the way, you may not know this, but the third bed/bath suite currently set up with twin beds turns into a wonderful king suite as well, so the home is perfect for three couples, each with their own bathroom. Thanks for your kind words, your responsible stewardship of our house, and for our fun email exchanges. I really hope to meet you next time! Best, Mila

Cozy…feels new…and a great location

My wife and I recently stayed with friends at this place. It's in a wonderful location... close to what we wanted to do. The house looks better than the pictures: open... yet private. We walked into town for our coffee and bagels each morning. Then it was on to restaurants and tasting rooms and vineyards, all within a few blocks. Finally, we turned on the fire and enjoyed the living room at night. Quick dip in the hot tub was great too . Sweet neighborhood. Owners were very cooperative.

Bliss out in St. Helena

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
My husband and I spent a delightfully relaxing and fun-filled weekend with another couple at this lovely home within walking distance of downtown St. Helena. The home is located in a residential neighborhood (so we felt like locals), tasteful, and inviting, and could easily have accommodated an additional 2-4 guests. We hung out in the backyard hot tub and pool, sampled the local coffee shops and restaurants, and strolled the neighboring vineyards. Yountville and its selection of world class restaurants is close by, as are hikes in the picturesque hills. There was even a film festival going on in town. One could easily spend an entire week here and try a new activity everyday while still feeling completely relaxed and at home, but we only had a weekend! We'll definitely be back!
This home will appeal to a wide variety of guests--couples, families, "girls' weekend away," wedding party, etc. The property is extremely well maintained and the hosts are very attentive to guests' needs.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you were able to take advantage of the film festival. It's surprisingly big with great movies. Thanks for staying at the house. I'm really glad you had such a great time!

Luxury and Location in St. Helena

  • Submitted: Nov 18, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in November. It felt like we were staying in the home of wealthy friends. The house itself looks like new construction and is very spacious and well furnished. The bedrooms are comfortable and the living room is a great place to hang out with comfy couches and a view of the beautiful garden and pool. Even though it was November we were able to swim in the heated pool every day, followed by hours relaxing in the hot tub enjoying a bottle of Chardonnay and the peaceful garden which is completely private.

Walk two blocks away from Main St. and you will find yourself passing by vineyards and the old Spottswoode Winery. We saw many interesting houses and some impressive estates in the neighborhood. Walk three blocks in the other direction and you are on Main St. in the heart of St. Helena. We enjoyed having morning coffee and shopping there.

I definitely hope to come back some day. This is the nicest place we have ever stayed at on VRBO.

Owner's Response: Wow. I'm kind of bowled over by these complimentary words. We definitely aim to please; I've stayed in a lot of rentals myself, and always keep a mental list of what makes me happy in them. I'm glad to hear we succeeded for you!

The Ultimate in Casual Elegance and Relaxation

I recently stayed in this beautiful house with a few girlfriends and we had the time of our lives! It's such an elegant and tasteful home with so many places to relax, settle in with a glass of wine, or get cozy with a book. The yard is lovely too--makes you feel like you're in Italy or France. And then there are the "spa" amenities: the gorgeous pool, the hot tub, the outdoor (hot) shower, the steam room, and the three blue-tiled bathrooms with robes for guests. Who needs a spa when you can stay here? We rented bikes and rode around lovely St. Helena, walked into town for some excellent dinners, explored nearby Calistoga (where we did get massages), and visited some wineries. But my favorite part of our vacation was lounging in this lovely home. I felt as if I were miles away from the stresses of life. I look forward to unwinding here again!

Owner's Response: Success! You told me this was an important getaway, and I'm excited to learn that it was as happy as you hoped. Yay. Thanks very much for posting this! We love hearing that you liked the house.
